Easy as pie? Is pie really easy? It's easy to eat, but not always easy to make. Excellence is easy to appreciate and enjoy, but getting there takes a while. Join me in my Pursuit In Excellence. It won't be quick , but it will be worth it!
For me excellence revolves around motherhood and grandmahood. It is central to my many interests which I use to help my children develop their talents and have fun.
I share my journey here, The Homemaking Cottage and Arizona Mama. Be sure to see what else is cooking!

What started off as our traditional Christmas morning breakfast has also become our traditional Easter morning breakfast. With all those hard-boiled eggs, this is the perfect way to actually use all those eggs the Easter Bunny hid. Just don’t try it with the plastic ones; the chocolate ones might not be the best either.
I love when the egg dye bleeds into the eggs and makes breakfast a little extra pretty.
Since the Easter Bunny visits us on Saturday morning, I assemble Sunday’s breakfast on Saturday night and bake it Sunday morning.
- 12 hard boiled eggs
- 24 sausage links
- 1 cube of butter or margarine
- 1 cup flour
- 3-4 cups milk
- Cheddar cheese
- Brown sausage and lay in 9” x 13” pan.
- Slice eggs in half lengthwise and lay on the sausage.
- Melt butter, stir in flour and milk.
- Cook until over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it forms a thick sauce, about 10 or 15 minutes.
- Sprinkle cheese on top.
- Cover with foil.
- Refrigerate overnight.
- Bake for 30 minutes at 350.
I keep getting more and more behind with this whole blogging thing, now I’m slicing November and December in the middle of January! But I’m glad to review the last too months regardless. Maybe this year I can come up with a schedule I can make happen.

Now that I’ve survived December and have a year of months sliced under my belt for 2013, I’m trying to wrap my head around the New Year. I’m still wrestling with setting my goals for this year so I can move forward and successfully slice another year’s worth of months.
Fall has officially hit here in Arizona! It’s 64 degrees as I write this. I’ve been enjoying soups and chili all month and despite the five bowls of candy on my counter, I’m in the mood for some baking. Before I get too carried away with fall festivities, I better slice October!

Happy July! Can you believe June is over and so is the first half of the 2013? I had to pull out my list of goals for this year and see how I’m doing. A couple are on track, the other eight not so much. Instead of stressing out over what I haven’t done, let’s see how I sliced June.
